UC Davis/NIH NeuroMab Facility Protocols

NeuroMabs and other mouse mAbs are typically available in two forms:

TC Supernatant: conditioned bovine serum-containing media harvested from hybridoma cells cultured in vitro. Typically contains 20-40 ug/mL mouse monoclonal lgG plus 10 ug/mL bovine lgG and other bovine serum components. Can contain substantially higher amounts of mouse monoclonal lgG. Recommended working dilutions for TC supernatants are 1:2-1:20 for immunoperoxidase-based immunohistochemistry, and 1:2-1:10 for immunofluorescence-based immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry, and immunoblotting.

Purified lgG: Predominantly mouse monoclonal lgG but may contain trace amounts of other mouse lgG. Recommended working concentrations for purified lgGs are 0.1-1 ug/mL for immunoperoxidase-based immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting, and 1-10 ug/mL for immunofluorescence-based immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry.

These recommended working dilutions/concentrations are meant to be a starting point for optimization based on your specific application.  Further suggestions can be found within individual protocols. 

Optimize immunolabeling with NeuroMabs and other mouse monoclonal antibodies by employing appropriate subclass-specific secondary antibodies. See article here.
